  • FULL-TIME: European champions Chelsea will meet South American champions Corinthians in the final after dispatching Monterrey at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama. Juan Mata opened the scoring following a delightful move and they came out firing in the second half, scoring a quick-fire double by Fernando Torres and an unfortunate own goal from Darvin Chavez. Aldo De Nigris scored a late consolation, but Rafa Benitez would have been delighted with his side's overall performance. They'll now hope to become Club World Cup champions for the first time in their history on Sunday.

  • The 29-year-old Mexican International deservedly gets his goal deep in stoppage time and Monterrey get their consolation goal. There's a real lack of defending as De Nigris is given too much time and space to slot away his effort into the far corner. Bang goes my 3-0 prediction too!


  • Two added minutes of stoppage time!

  • Victor Moses concedes about his fourth free-kick after coming on as a substitute.

  • CLOSE!! Space opens up for Frank Lampard, but his toe poke flies just over the crossbar. How the Chelsea faithful would have loved to have seen that go in!

  • We're into the final five minutes now as Chelsea go in search of a fourth goal. They've looked impressive today!

  • SUBSTITUTIONS: Double change here for the Mexicans. Edgar Solis and Dario Carreno come onto the field for Severo Meza and Cesar Delgado, who has been one of their shining lights in this match.

  • Uefa president, Michel Platini is in the stands looking pretty cold, but I'm sure he's enjoyed this display by Chelsea today.

  • SUBSTITUTE: Fernando Torres is replaced by Victor Moses as Rafa Benitez makes his final change.

  • Chelsea are playing down the clock and allowing their opponents to keep possession.

  • Ferreira stands on Jose Maria Basanta's foot as he takes on a new role as a right winger.

  • Paulo Ferreira has literally only just come on and he's already in an advanced position.

  • Jesus Corona wraps his foot around the ball, but it's hopelessly high and wide.

  • SUBSTITUTION: Paulo Ferreira comes on for Juan Mata, who has done his job.

  • Certainly is Dan and he's settled in that midfield role like a duck to water.

  • Petr Cech is down to make a standar save after Azpilicueta was nudged off the ball too easily. Moments later Aldo De Nigris' touch lets him down.
